OH: “The Hare Krishnas? Aren’t they some sort of crystal meth distribution network?” “Oh, if only!”

OH: “… and this is Jeremy. He’s a vegetarian, but we won’t hold that against him.”

Platypus down, I think.

via TweetDeck

Sorry, I must correct that. Espolòn tequila. http://arseh.at/2wq

via TweetDeck

RT @coliwilso: Mexican alcohol is better. [Yes. And Espèlon tequila was the one I was introduced to in the US. It’s very good.]

via TweetDeck

@Drag0nista Wine and corn chips could work too. But I’ve already ordered the salad.

via TweetDeck in reply to Drag0nista

RT @Nickhodge: A salad is half a taco. [True. The non-sludge half.]

via TweetDeck

Sorry to offend the fans of Mexican food. Well, actually, I’m not. But for those who care, I had a late lunch so I’ll just grab a salad.

via TweetDeck

I just saw some self-serving Python wankery pass by in my main Twitter timeline. I won’t link to it because it’s beneath contempt.

via TweetDeck

Tacos, @GeordieGuy? I think not. For me, Mexican food seems little more than different varieties of sludge in a corn-based container.

via TweetDeck

Pondering what to do for dinner.

via TweetDeck

@Matt_Phipps That’s nothing to do with regulation. It’s about licensing deals through Australian distribution companies and broadcasters.

via TweetDeck in reply to Matt_Phipps

Congratulations to @ApostrophePong for getting his Bangkok-based job with That Evil Organisation. Well done.

via TweetDeck

Agreed, @badm0f0, I was disgusted that my Telstra bill didn’t explain how they got to that AUD 313. Made-up numbers FTL.

via TweetDeck

Cost of occasionally using roaming mobile data to check Twitter for a week in SFO: more than AUD 313. Gee, thanks Telstra.

via TweetDeck

@Matt_Phipps I dunno, I don’t recall anything stopping broadcasters also choosing the license their stuff out onto internet streams as well.

via TweetDeck in reply to Matt_Phipps

Well, the radio is done anyway. I suppose I could have done it via Skype with my noise-cancelling headset. I’ve done that before.

via TweetDeck

Bloody Paul Turton on ABC Radio just told his audience that I was joining him live from the pub. There goes my reputation. [sulks]

via TweetDeck

RT @joannejacobs: FYI, average total revenue per user for phone, broadband, tv & internet in UK is £35 = A$52 [Well exactly.]

via TweetDeck

The NBN will be how we watch TV, Alan Kohler? The internet already IS how I watch TV. http://arseh.at/2wo

via TweetDeck

“Merry Xmas, NBN Grinches: here’s your CBA”, says David Braue (@zyzzyvamedia) http://arseh.at/2wn Nice work.

via TweetDeck

@KCevol Ta for the tips. Then again, it might be education for people to see some of these images. Like AFL players and their dogs.

via TweetDeck in reply to KCevol

@KCevol Yep, “every time I open a new tab” pretty much covers it. Especially when I’m in public and the sites are, um, “recreational”. Sigh.

via TweetDeck in reply to KCevol

Finally reading Paul Carr’s latest on Wikileaks. I can even put up with visiting TechCrunch to read it. http://arseh.at/2wm

via TweetDeck

I wish, sometimes, that Safari wouldn’t remind me, graphically, which websites I’ve been visiting most over the past few days.

via TweetDeck

In about an hour I’ll be on ABC Radio Statewide NSW talking Avatar piracy and Twitter in the courtroom, amongst other things.

via TweetDeck

@macleanbrendan I have not tried the mash. I must limit my exposure to the pleasures of the potato.

via TweetDeck in reply to macleanbrendan

Should anyone care, Kelly’s on King’s upstairs extension is completed and open for business. Um, so I’m told.

via TweetDeck

Agreed, @julieposetti @mincerti, interesting that Kohler picked up variables that were clearly in NBN Co’s favour. Fresh view FTW!

via TweetDeck

Finally reading Alan Kohler’s “Now that’s a broadband business plan” http://arseh.at/2wi

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Stanmore Rd; Ocean Vietnamese Restaurant; errands on Enmore Rd and perhaps beyond; remainder TBA.

via TweetDeck

Indeed, @purserj. Anyone who imagines I don’t write anything critical of the Labor government must be blind. Or really, really stupid.

via TweetDeck

See, I knew there was something wrong about Google Analytics! http://arseh.at/2wg

Me at Crikey: “It’s network neutrality, but it’s neutered” http://arseh.at/2wf

via TweetDeck

@grantshow Lovely. I am an object of ridicule again. Nothing has changed since primary school.

via TweetDeck in reply to grantshow

@grantshow That’s just a polite way of saying that I’m mad, isn’t it?

via TweetDeck in reply to grantshow

“Favourite Twitter-er of the year”, @grantshow? Really? Why for would that be? Curious minds…

via TweetDeck

RT @bradsprigg: People complaining about cost seem to keep missing the point that the retail cost includes line rental. [I agree.]

via TweetDeck

I should mention that those antlers were constructed three years ago, commissioned by @SnarkyPlatypus who continues to use them.

via TweetDeck

What is this “dignity” of which you speak, @thetowncrier? Is it a species of duck, perhaps? An additive for cheese?

via TweetDeck

Are your reindeer antlers as impressive as mine, @thetowncrier? http://arseh.at/2w7

via TweetDeck

“NBN is too expensive at $80 retail average”, says @phildobbie’s “Twisted Wire” podcast.

via TweetDeck

Crikey story filed!

via TweetDeck

@MadLid Thanks, but it’s a different document I’m after. I have it now. One just has to be patient.

via TweetDeck in reply to MadLid

Hah! US FCC’s website is currently overloaded and can’t serve out a certain PDF document. I wonder why…?

via TweetDeck

The thing I’m writing for Crikey today? That’s changed. I’m now writing a different thing for Crikey today. We must all get used to Change.

via TweetDeck

@mpesce You’re running an hour early there, Sir. Your UTC to AEDT calculations are full of eels.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

I am now being glared at for applying insufficient effort in the head-scratching department.

via TweetDeck

Writing mode. Quiet please. I already have pants on. Apollo needs to sit on my lap as I write. Pants make this both comfortable and non-AFL.

via TweetDeck

Dear Australians, do remember that Summer Solstice is at 1038 AEDT today. I for one will be taking a moment to reflect.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Erm, that is, that I’m saying that there should be NO plan of any kind. Arsehats anyway.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Most commenters seem incapable of understanding nuance. They think I’m saying there should be a plan of any kind. Arsehats.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer That’s the thrust of my piece, yes. @GreenJ did the headline: “It’s the NBN Corporate Plan, not a crystal ball”.

via TweetDeck

I started to read the comments on my ABC piece from yesterday, but I think I’ll need something stronger than coffee. http://arseh.at/2vr

via TweetDeck

Wed plan: Write for Crikey; lunch & local errands; an afternoon of many desk-related things; clean the office; quiet evening, in theory.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Il est une référence littéraire. Je crois que ce qui a trait aux aéroglisseurs.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il se pourrait bien que la Solstice est plein des anguilles. Je ne comprends pas du tout confiance. Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Ah um erm, Wednesday.

via TweetDeck

Well, that’s all that code re-written then. Nothing too difficult, but it was a pain to have to do it twice.

via TweetDeck

@i386 Version control is already on the agenda for the next production meeting.

via TweetDeck in reply to i386

@jonoabroad Wayback Machine doesn’t show anything more recent that six months, to qualify as an archive and avoid copyright hassles.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad I just found my sticking point: I was editing the CSS file on the staging server but the page was referencing production. Doh!
